Merry Christmas 2013


It might be Christmas Eve 2013 where you are but here in Perth it’s well and truly Christmas Day.

I want to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a very happy day as you celebrate Christmas wherever you are in the world. Many will be experiencing a cold or even a white Christmas but here in Perth, Western Australia, we have a hot summer day forecast.

Remember to pace yourself throughout the day so that you don’t regret it all tomorrow and don’t forget to take time out to reflect on what Christmas is truly all about.

Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men. – Luke 2:14

We went to a Christmas Eve service at church last night and we’ll be catching up with both sides of our family throughout the day.

I’d really love to hear how you’ll be celebrating. Please leave a comment or two to let me know.

  • Hi Rodney,

    Just wanted to wish you and yours a merry and blessed Christmas.

    How did we celebrate? We attended two different Christmas Eve church services and both were quite special. We attended at our regular church and then met up with friends who invited us to their Christmas Eve service.

    Our Christmas Day will be just the two of us. We’ll catch up with family on Thursday and Friday – they live about a 3 hours’ drive away from us.

  • Thanks for dropping in Lindy. I only realised after you visited that I hadn’t been to your blog for a while.
